EET Fuels, which owns and runs the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex, today announced the launch of its ‘100 grants for 100 years’ celebrate the refinery’s 100th anniversary. The Stanlow Refinery 100 Grants Fund will provide financial support to benefit community projects close to the Stanlow site, including in Ellesmere Port and surrounding areas.

Stanlow was established in 1924, initially as a bitumen production site. Since then, it has grown to become a vital pillar of the UK’s energy sector for a century, providing essential products and transportation fuels and supporting both the nation’s and North West’s economic growth.

The Centenary celebration will also encompass a series of events and initiatives that recognise Stanlow’s significant contribution to the Cheshire community, the North West region, and the UK as a whole. At the same time, the Company will use the Centenary to recognise, celebrate and give thanks to the communities connected to Stanlow while demonstrating its long-term commitment to support these communities long into the future.

‘We are incredibly proud of the Stanlow Refinery’s rich history and its significant contribution to the region’s economy,’ says Deepak Maheshwari, CEO, EET Fuels. ‘The Stanlow Refinery 100 Grant Fund is our way of giving back to the community that has supported us for the past century.’

The Stanlow Refinery 100 Grant Fund is open to applications from registered charities and not-for-profit organizations working in the following sectors:

  • Education and skills development
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Community health and well-being
  • Culture and heritage

A group can apply for grant of up to £1,000, and applications will be judged on their potential to make a positive impact on the local community.

‘We are committed to being a good neighbour and playing a positive role in the Ellesmere Port community,’ says Michelle Lewis, Corporate Affairs Director, EET Fuels. ‘We encourage all eligible organisations to apply for a grant and help us celebrate this important milestone.’

Applications for the Stanlow Refinery 100 Grant Fund can be made from today.
